For me January was not bad at all! How was yours? Any resolutions?
I didn't really make much of an effort with resolutions this year but decided that in a world where everyone vows to eat less for their resolutions I want to eat MORE! No, not quantity but I always want to try more new foods, more new recipes and more challenges with my cooking.
My second resolution is probably the best and most important one for me..."photo a day".
After seeing the photo projects that Chez Larsson did (sadly she's no longer blogging but still has many, many wonderful posts) I decided that this was something that I wanted to do. I chose this for a couple of reasons - I have a hopeless memory but memories are often triggered by photos. I can look at an old photo and a flood of smells, emotions, sounds can all come back to me immediately. I also wanted to use the technology we have these days not to improve my photography but to capture daily things that happen that I like. My "PAD" is more of a personal photo diary more than anything else so don't expect any amazing photography, just what is happening in my day to day life!

Best day: Beautiful orchid delivered (that's that picture at the top of the post!) - I picked it up from reception and all the girls there were jealous. I've got a good man in Mr Jones for buying me something so lovely. If you are an orchid grower I would appreciate any advice so I can keep it going!
Worst day: Sort of a best/worst day - visiting the IBD nurse to talk about the next medication to try for my Crohn's (Humira). Scary, emotional, intense but hopefully the way forward for medication after I had a bad reaction to Azathioprine!
